Membership Provider Resources

  Asked By: Ciera    Date: Apr 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 817

Does anybody have a good resource for customizing sharepoint in using
role and membership providers?

I've gotten the LDAP, SQL and AD providers all working but have the
following problems:

People Picker doesn't find my user unless I type it in verbatim

The "Welcome" component displays my email or username and not the
preferred displayName

It would be nice to know enough to develop my own custom provider and
also to develop or modify components of my sharepoint pages to use
different attributes from this provider.

You might need to add provider  to your peoplepicker in the web.config of
your site.

Here is a sample

<clear />
<add key="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" value="%" />
<add key="YourLDAPProvider" value="*" />
